Welcome to CMM

The CMM forum software was recently upgraded, some things may have changed and some things may be broken or not working. Please let me know by PM or on IRC if you have any problems using this forum.

Also, I've removed the skybox and shader links for now, the shader generator page was being abused and as we're moving towards a ue4 mapping base, they're redundant.

Well, I use Windoze 7 because I enjoy having my CS5 Suite handy at all times to mess with textures etc. I'm pretty sure you could use wine or something with linux but I really dont want the hassle... Plus there is no special procedure for compiling and installing radiant.

CentOS for the last 3 years, Fedora Core 1-5 for some years before that, Slackware for the 4 years before that, and my first distro as i remember was Redhat Linux 3, back in 96 or 97.

I have been using Linux on and off for a long time and Unix before that for some time (since age 10), BBC B computers before that from about age 6 (lots of people in my family worked in education and we always had latest computers in the house).

I rarely use windows now. I have another computer with it on, that i use for playing Stalker (all 3 of them) and Counterstrike, which is mainly comprised of the last generation of upgrades i had (currently a Nv GTS 250, 4GB DDR2, AMD 9750 on Win XP SP2). I dont play modern games on it, just games i like.
